Keto Confessions

The good, the bad, and the ugly (+4 lbs)

  • Rule 1: Never go on a girls’ trip to Charleston without an extra-strong dose of willpower.
  • Rule 2: If you’re going to cheat, don’t cheat at every meal!
  • Rule 3: See Rules 1 and 2.

One good thing

My friend and I went off to explore the city of Charleston, S.C. over President’s Day weekend – and that meant LOTS of walking all over the gorgeous historic district. In fact, on one day alone we walked six miles by my Fitbit. That was the shining moment of the weekend. We saw everything from the beautiful Battery to the downtown Market to scores of houses with those magnificent, long Charleston-style porches designed to catch the breezes.

A porch designed to catch as much breeze as possible.

One not-so-bad thing

We decided to take a break from the walking (12 miles total over the weekend) by taking a Carriage Horse tour. That gave us the chance to see more of Charleston – but also kept me from some more much-needed exercise!

The ugly

All those delicious meals – and the grits! Oh, my word, the grits and the biscuits (So NOT Keto) were out of this world at Miller’s All Day, a wonderful breakfast and brunch place. I think there was a way to eat keto-friendly here, but it would have broken my Southern heart.

Big, bountiful biscuit and grits: not Keto. Eggs, cheese, and bacon: Keto

All told, I weighed again this morning and found I’d gained 4 pounds. Ugh. Yuck. Oh, well – back to salads, lean meat and keto-friendly oils! A few final pictures of the Charleston trip:

  1. We had a great time in Charleston! The walking and carriage horse tour were great, and I feel like I’ve learned a lot about the city since we were there. I’ll definitely be back and plan to cheat on my breakfast tomorrow so I can get back into shape!
